Cookies flavored with mandarin orange extract. Strange? Weird? Maybe. But, if you like the flavor of an orange and the sweetness of cookies then these are the ones for you. Sorta like a sugar cookie but with a hint of orange. Hey?! Wait! It’s like those lime sugar cookies! I bet fresh orange juice would’ve tasted even better! Man, I really have to restock the kitchen. I’m now out of flour, brown sugar, oj! But anyways, imagine an orange flavored sugar cookie. Enjoy!
